There might be an official localization if someone (or does it have to
be a group of people?) volunteers to translate it.

If you want to do it, these links should have useful information:

(Contrary to what the last page says, the newsgroup for L10n
["localization" is an L, 10 letters, and an N, so it's abbreviated
"L10n"] is now on this server []
instead of netscape.public.mozilla.l10n. Um... I'll cross-post this
there, so go there if you want to discuss it more, though I probably
won't be there, since I know nothing about localization.)
